. >>> political theater. stephen colbert on capitol hill to highlight a serious issue. but did it serve his cause? or just show contempt for congress? >>> hostage drama. robbers kidnap a florida bank teller, strap a bomb to his chest, then use him as a weapon to get the money. >>> vintage baseball. the only video of what may be the greatest game ever played, socked away for 50 years in bing crosby's wine cellar. >>> and children's crusader. our troubled schools need a super hero, and we found one. he's our "person of the week." >>> good evening. the phone calls were ugly and harrowing. they came early in the morning, late at night, over and over again. in these tough times, it may be no surprise that debt collectors calls are the country's top consumer complaint, but these ones crossed all boundaries of decency. racist, pornographic, even targeting someone who owed nothing. tonight, our investigation has found the callers behind these vile shakedowns were hired by a company working for one of america's banking giants. chief investigative correspondent ryan brosz brian e this evidence is stunning.

. >>> there was a strange spectacle on capitol hill on the comedian, stephen colbert testifying beforess hearing on immigration. he was there because he had done a segment on his show spent a day working in fies ts was he came to the hearing, however in character, as a blow-hard tv commentator. and he stayed in character the entire time. he did not, however, exactly get the laughs he's used to getting on his show. >> it is an honor and a privilege to be here today. congresswoman lofgren asked me to share my vast experience spending one day as a migrant farm worker. i'm happy to use my celebrity to draw attention to this important, complicated issue. i have to say, and i do mean this sincerely, please don't make me do this again. it is really, really hard. maybe this ag jobs bill would help. i don't know. like most members of congress, i haven't read it. the point is, we have to do something. i'm not going back out there. i trust that following my testimony, both sides will work together on this issue in the best interest of the american people, as you always do. >> love him. subcommittee chairwo
